This week's episode of The Secret Circe was an emotional hour of dead birds, "leafy root," sobbing hipsters, and hallucinating bad-boys. We’ve rounded up the top five OMG moments for you to look back on.

1. The moment we've all been waiting for: Adam cries hysterically
After 16 episodes of watching Adam's (Thomas Dekker) beautiful eyelashes glitter with the promise of tears, he finally gave into his manmotions and had a complete breakdown. Poor kid couldn't bear the possibility of a life without fondling Cassie's (Britt Robertson) hair extensions, and decided it was appropriate to weep all over her while Jake (Chris Zylka) was lying in the background half-dead.

Here's to hoping that Adam spends much more time crying — it does wonders for his lashes. Also, why do we have a feeling this boy watched The Vow that night?  

2. Jake has mental breakdown, screams at innocent water bottle
Apparently, Adam and Cassie's red-hot bird sex was so disgusting to Jake that his body shut down in protest. He broke into a shirtless fever, grew a strange vein in his arm, and then developed an irrational fear of sporty water bottles. We get it, first comes water bottles, next comes hiking boots, and before you know it, you're wearing Crocs to work. It's enough to make anyone sick.

Of course, Jake's fever also lowered his inhibitions, and he took the opportunity to tell Cassie how much he cares about her. We're still swooning over the way he looked at her when she stuck her hand down his V-neck.

3. Eva pulls a Norman Bates, refuses to bury Lee's body
Eva's just a small town girl living in a witchy world, and she wasn't mentally prepared to absorb Faye's powers. Then again, there's really no excuse for keeping a dead body in your room in the hopes of resurrecting it. We were just as shocked as Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) was to see Lee's previously studly corpse chillin' out in bed, but even weirder? The fact that Faye didn't call the police, and instead left her boyfriend's dead body in the hands of a crazy killer.

Sigh, at least we finally got proof that po-po actually exist in Chance Harbor. Guess they just aren't interested in plebeian things like murder.

4. Adam falls out of love with Cassie
Thanks to Professor Snape's John Blackwell's elixir, Adam fell out of love with Cassie faster than we fell in love with Jake. One day he was a sobbing into a body pillow, and the next he was just like "whatever, laters." Honestly, we're relieved. Even though Cassie still loves Adam, it's high time this boy thought about something else than pouring whipped cream all over her neck. Is it too much to hope for a Diadam reunion?

5. Cassie and Adam aren't actually cursed
We had a feeling that John Blackwell was hiding something sinister under his trench coat, and now the truth has been revealed! Turns out Blackwell still has magical powers, and he tricked Cassie and Adam into thinking their sweet love killed a bunch of birds and activated a curse.

So why would Blackwell go to such lengths to keep Cassie and Adam apart? Apparently, Amelia and Ethan (Adam Harrington) almost ditched their Circle when they were head-over-heels in love, and Blackwell doesn't want history to repeat itself. Fair enough, but did he really have to put Jake in harm's way?
